Can we consider him as being self employed even if he is looking after his mother?

Thanks

No!

He works for his mum, there is no need for a written contract, a contract can be verbal. Fact he receives WTC is a red herring and neither here nor there in this particular instance (HMRC may not even know what he is doing now), the arrangement between the 2 of them is what dictates how this flows.
